Aspera, Inc.: 66th Berlin International Film Festival Selects Aspera for Fast, Secure File-Based Film Delivery for the Second Consecutive Year

ARMONK, N.Y., Feb. 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IBM (NYSE:IBM) today announced
that for the second consecutive year, Aspera has been selected as an Official
Supplier for the 66th Berlin International Film Festival, taking place on 11
- 21 February 2016. As one of the most important events for the international
film industry, Berlinale attracts more than 300,000 attendees from around the
world, and showcases some 400 films of every genre, length and format on more
than 60 different screens, totaling over 2500 screenings.

Building on the Aspera workflow deployed in 2015, Berlinale has added Aspera
Orchestrator to automate and streamline its internal workflows. Integrated
into their existing, highly automated QC and distribution processes, Aspera
Orchestrator analyzes, validates, and manages all incoming digital packages
and automatically passes them on to the primary storage in the data center.

With 4K films continuing to play a large part in the festival's line-up, the
organizers have again deployed Aspera Shares to efficiently and securely
handle the increased digital file sizes of 4K films. The solution enables the
high-speed, file-based ingest of feature-length films from participants
directly to Berlinale's data center in Berlin. All films for the festival
program and the European Film Market are stored as DCPs on a huge server,
with 250 films transferred daily to the various festival cinemas.

With film files of up to 250GB each, the growing demand to ingest and share
large files digitally from multiple locations across the globe has driven the
need for faster transfer speeds, improved reliability, and a streamlined
digital workflow. With Aspera Shares, the organizers can use their full 10GB
fiber connection to receive DCP files, quickly and securely regardless of
distance and network conditions. By standardizing file-based film delivery
on Aspera Shares, content from contributors can be easily gathered and
managed.

In addition to Aspera Shares and Orchestrator, Berlinale is also using Aspera
Console for complete visibility and real-time tracking and control over
transfers. Aspera Connect Server powers the architecture with the Aspera
FASP® protocol allowing the large number of participants to exchange their
files quickly and reliably over the wide area network.

"By adding Aspera Orchestrator to the successful Aspera workflow we deployed
last year, not only can we continue to handle all digital cinema content,
including 4K, at high speed, securely, and reliably, we're now able to
automate our internal workflows. With our internal processes more efficiently
managed, we're better able to meet our tight show deadlines," explained Ove
Sander, Technical Manager Digital Cinema, Berlinale.

"After successfully using Aspera Shares to manage the ever-increasing file
sizes at last year's festival, Berlinale has expanded its Aspera workflow to
drive further efficiencies," said Bruce Brewer, European sales director,
Aspera. "With the introduction of Aspera Orchestrator, the festival's
organizers can manage the thousands of incoming digital packages and
automatically passes them on to their internal APIs, saving valuable time and
resources."
